Me & My Cousins (Sketchy Thursdays GDT Challenge)

Look at this beautiful combination of sketch and picture i found on the Sketchy Thursdays blog for their Guest Design Team Challenge. Isn't it fabulous?
It sure got my creative juices flowing! I love all the layering in the sketch and the colors and flower print of the cups. Here is the layout i created with all of those elements in mind: 

Me & My Cousins
The Magical Wishes paper collection by Webster's Pages seemed just perfect to go along with the theme and colors of both the inspirational picture and this old photo of me & my cousins when we were little. It was taken at a uncle's wedding. I'm the little girl in the pink :)  The picture was of very poor quality, but i played around with it a little on Picnik and, using the 'cross process' function, gave it more of a vintage feel. I love the way it turned out.

The flowers are mostly Prima, the bling is from ZVA Creative and the chipboard accents are from The Dusty Attic.
I used pink chalk on the bird bath followed by Moonlight Smooch Ink.

All the sketches i have seen so far on Sketchy Thursdays are excellent, their DT extremely talented, their sponsors amazing... so, needless to say, i would be extremely happy to be part of their team, if only for just one month :)
